Windows 7: Bootable usb windows 7 - Tryed everything - Please help

Windows 7 Professional - x64
Bootable usb windows 7 - Tryed everything - Please help

Ok here I am, I write here in forums because now I feel really stuck and need

help. I have done so much effort to make it work and now I just have no patience

left at all.

I want to do something that is suposly to be really straightforward to do but

for some reason, whatever I do, it NEVER work: I want to install windows 7 on a

hard drive from a bootable usb thumb drive.

After pluging the thumb drive to the computer, I boot the computer from it. The

windows installation appear, I select the language and keyboard layout, choose

next. When selecting the drive (only one regular 500gb hdd pluged to the mobo)

to install the OS I click next then always the same message: "setup was unable

to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. see the

setup log files for more information."

I have done the following things trying to make it work:

- Install the iso with different usb bootable tools (the windows tool, rufus,

winbootic and more)
- Tried different windows Iso I have (different Os, different language,

different architechture and different version)
- Tried to install it on different flash drive I have (all brand new and

- Tried installing it on many different computers (at least 10 differents)
- Tried diskpart commands suggested to fix that
- Tried editing the Bios : changing the sata type to ahci as some people

suggested. What other setting can I change in the Bios?

And now at that point what can I do more? Honestly Im really tired of all this,

I just dont know what to do. And I absolutly need to make it work as it should.

Please guys I need help with this, otherwise ill just get crazy.
